Director Statement

Growing up in New York City, Landre was used to seeing diversity on the city streets and it wasn't until she got older that she realized art did not always imitate life. Rarely seeing anyone on TV/film that looked like her or were the heroes in their own stories, Landre was deeply impacted by this and it became a turning point in her life. Since then, she has made it her goal tell stories with more representation, one project at a time.
